Many of our articles have focused on our decorative wood-based panels being used in living areas and kitchens but we have been delighted to see that some of the most creative architects and interior designers have implemented them into their bathroom designs.
Getting your bathroom designed correctly can be a challenging experience, especially as trends move ahead rapidly, often leaving bathrooms outdated. Fortunately, we are ahead of the curve with the latest updates here.
Here are six trends which are guaranteed to create the most enviable bathrooms…
1. High Contrast
Bathrooms can be relatively small rooms when compared to the rest of the home, therefore they need to be designed in a way that creates a statement. Bathrooms that make use of high contrast in colours and textures often have the best expressions of design and are the most memorable.
2. Neutral Palette
There are many reasons to make use of a neutral palette for your bathroom interior, but the most notable is that it allows for a feeling of serenity and creates a foundation perfect for personalisation. Matching a neutral palette with beautiful monochromatic finishes will be a huge trend in the most luxurious bathrooms this year.
3. Bold, Dark Colours
Black is the new black when it comes to bathroom decor. Bold colours in darker shades will not only help designers create the highly sought after contrast between elements in their bathroom designs but will also highlight the monochromatic features in the bathroom. This colour choice helps to create an extremely luxurious experience in bathrooms that lighter shades fail to provide.
4. Exposed Plumbing
The industrial look is creating a big impact on interior design and is now making its way into the bathroom. Exposed plumbing coupled with pewter and gunmetal hardware shades will be taking centre stage, and have become the perfect complement to other industrial inspired decors such as poured concrete and metal finishes.

5. The Spa Effect
A bathroom is a place of serenity and relaxing indulgence, so there‘s no surprise that spas have become a design inspiration. Elements taken from spas include white and grey marble designs, natural-looking wood grain finishes along with exposed and poured concrete textures.
6. Compact Design
Large bathrooms aren‘t out of style, yet, however, many designers and architects are becoming more aware of trendy small-space living environments. This has created the challenge of finding the most effective way to design a compact bathroom that won‘t affect any of the basic functions or luxuries required.
With these design trends in your bathroom interiors, the difficult-to-achieve ideal bathroom decor will be easily accomplished.
